Saanich wants your kitchen scraps Municipality prepares to launch kitchen scrap recycling program Kyle Slavin News staff

T

hose chicken and fish bones, paper wrappers and mouldy cheeses that aren’t fit to compost may not have to wind up in your trash much longer. Saanich is embarking on a three-month kitchen scraps recycling pilot project, where anything from compostables to soiled paper towel won’t be sent to the landfill. “I’ve been pushing at the regional level for this to happen for some time, and basically our initiative is a sign that we’ve given up on the (Capital Regional District) providing the service,” Saanich Mayor Frank Leonard said. As Hartland Landfill is estimated to be full by 2035, Leonard said steps need to be taken to divert as much waste as possible from the landfill. That will hopefully give it a longer lifespan. Saanich’s pilot project runs May through July in two select neighbourhoods: Borden and Nicolson streets, and Braefoot Road and Livingstone Avenue N. The 583 participating homes will receive two carts (to separate garbage and kitchen scraps) in lieu of garbage cans, along with a kitchen container and collection bags. Two different collection methods are being tested: modified backyard pickup (crews grab the carts from on your property and leave them at the curb once emptied), and curbside pickup (residents will be expected to move carts to the curb on collection day). Dave McAra, Saanich’s manager of public works, says the goal of the pilot is to collect feedback from residents on the different collection methods, and see

Dave McAra, Saanich’s manager of fleet operations and solid waste services, holds one of the containers that select homes will get for the municipality’s kitchen scraps recycling pilot project. what the operational demands are on public works crews. “We want to collect as much information as possible, so depending on what the CRD decides (down the road), we’ll have some good data,” he said. Two municipal trucks will come around to the pilot neighbourhoods on collection day – one will empty the garbage cart, one will empty the kitchen scraps cart. The kitchen scraps will be sent up to

Hartland, but then diverted -- most likely to a processing facility in Cobble Hill, McAra said. “I’m hoping we get over 20 per cent (diversion),” he said. Over the span of the three months, he estimates two tonnes of kitchen scraps will be collected from the pilot area. “I think there’s still this sentiment that this is just backyard compost – but it’s more than that,” said Mike Ippen, manager of public works.

Fruit and veggie scraps, any leftover food, soiled paper products, coffee filters and grounds, solidified fat and grease, nuts and shells are all welcome in the kitchen scrap bin. Plastic, styrofoam, aluminum foil, pet feces, diapers, and yard and garden What are waste are among the items that aren’t kitchen scraps? acceptable.

The City of Victoria in February announced it will launch its own kitchen scraps collection program commencing in 2013. That municipality will use the modified backyard pickup collection method. – with files from Roszan Holmen kslavin@saanichnews.com

Construction delayed Craigflower Bridge work pushed to 2013 to ease environmental, archaeological permits Kyle Slavin News staff

Plans to build the new Craigflower Bridge have been put on hold until next year, after municipal engineers couldn’t achieve everything required in the tight timeframe they had. Jim Hemstock, Saanich’s manager of transportation, said the initial plan to begin construction on June 1 was aggressive. Now it’s considered unachievable. “There are environmental and archaeological processes (still outstanding) that are long and complicated,” he said. Last week, staff decided the project would be delayed by either six months or one year. “We’re still considering the pros and cons of summer and winter building,” Hemstock said. “We know that the two big drivers that effect the public would be Christmas shopping and getting kids to school.” From the engineering side of things,

however, the delays are more complicated. Saanich and View Royal share responsibility for the bridge. Both municipalities need to ensure construction doesn’t impact the salmon or herons that call the Gorge Waterway home. Archaeologically, two different permits are required to build on the sensitive lands near the historic Craigflower schoolhouse on the Saanich side, a former native burial ground. “We don’t have the permits. … Putting (the project out for tenders) now, not knowing if you can proceed is not a fiscally responsible things to do,” Mayor Frank Leonard said. “Uncertainty usually leads to higher prices. … It’s better we spend taxpayers’ money wisely and do it a bit later, than rush to get it done.” An announcement on whether bridge construction will begin in January 2013 or July 2013 isn’t expected to be made until August. The $10.7-million Craigflower Bridge reconstruction project is funded mostly by federal gas tax money. The existing narrow, two-lane bridge is 79 year old. It’s slated to be replaced by a three-lane bridge, complete with bike lanes and wide sidewalks. kslavin@saanichnews.com

Upscale Saanich mall aims to keep up with the times Broadmead Village pegged for $6.5-million renovation, expansion Kyle Slavin News staff

Broadmead Village, the outdoor, openair shopping centre located just off the Pat Bay Highway near the Royal Oak overpass, is preparing for an expensive facelift. Property owner and developer Grosvenor Americas hopes infusing $6.5 million into the 21-year-old strip mall, in the form of new storefronts, improved pedestrian walking and gathering spaces, and nearly 200-square-metres of new retail space, will help keep it a relevant place to shop, amid an overall shift in the shopping world. “I think the trend has been to convert open-air shopping centres into more of a lifestyle centre. Grosvenor is embracing the community aspect of the term ‘lifestyle centre’ – offering more to the

Computer rendering of a proposed $6.5-million facelift to Broadmead Village. community to come and enjoy their experience here,” said Alison Miles Cork, asset manager with Grosvenor Americas. “Victoria’s changing. The retail landscape is changing with Uptown and the renovation of Hillside. … Grosvenor wants to ensure that we maintain the centre and

continue to attract the kind of quality retailers the community wants.” Miles Cork said the plan for the outdoor pedestrian space includes a new water fountain, a fireplace and more seating, to help make it more of a gathering place. The existing storefronts will also

be changed, to include more “West Coast contemporary elements” using wood and greenery. “Our intent is to minimally impact the existing retailers, in terms of their business, so the renovation will be heavily articulated, with tenant co-ordination,” she said. Jim Griffith, president of the Broadmead Area Residents’ Association, said first impressions of the upgrades are positive. “It’s a much-needed facelift that should’ve been done years ago,” he said. Grosvenor Americas runs all of Broadmead Village, save for the Canadian Tire. A total of 41 businesses currently operate from the shopping centre. The plan – which still needs to be approved by the District of Saanich – is to begin with upgrading the landscape, pedestrian and parking elements in the spring. Building the new storefronts and additional retail space would begin in the summer or early fall. Project completion is expected by mid-2013. kslavin@saanichnews.com

Greater Victoria schools budget takes shape With the budgeting process underway, parents have the opportunity to share with school administration how they’d like to see school district funds spent. The Greater Victoria School District hosts a special budget meeting Wednesday (April 4) to receive public input on the proposed 2012-13 budget. The budget is based on an assumption of 18,821 full time students enrolled – a decrease of 190 school-aged students over 2011-12 – and a $171 million operating budget. It includes a projected deficit of $8,289,459, which is to be covered by funding carried forward from last year’s operating surplus of $8,639,000, leaving a projected net surplus of $349,541. The district announced that the three-day teacher strike had zero effect on the projected budget. The public input session is set for 7 p.m. April 4 in the SJ Willis auditorium, 923 Topaz Ave. Trustees will then debate the budget at 7 p.m. on April 16 in the Tolmie Board Room of the school board office, 556 Boleskine Rd. nnorth@saanichnews.com

“We remain of the view that we are not an issuer of cash cards and we are not therefore required to issue any refunds in the manner directed by Consumer Protection B.C.,” Cash Store Financial stated on its website. Still, Consumer Protection B.C. maintains any clients who have been overcharged since Nov. 1, 2009 must receive refunds within a 90-day period. Cash Store Financial must also pay a $25,000 administrative penalty and other costs. “Payday loan consumers cannot be charged extra for cash cards, that is the law,” Manjit Bains, vice-president of corporate relations for Consumer Protection B.C., said in a statement. “This decision sends a clear message to the industry and to consumers that consumers must never have to pay more than $23 for every $100 borrowed.” The money lender is considering launching a second appeal. “In any event ... any potential refund would not be significant,” the company said. For more information, please call Consumer Protection B.C. at 1-888564-9963 or visit www.consumerprotectionbc.ca.

The Cash Store and Instaloans have been ordered to repay customers who were illegally overcharged on payday loan cash cards. Edmonton-based Cash Store Financial Inc., which has The Cash Store and Instaloans branches in Victoria, Esquimalt, Saanich and Colwood, was the focus of a Consumer Protection B.C. investigation in 2010. The inquiry revealed customers were being billed more than the allowed maximum of $23 per $100 borrowed on cash cards. The company was ordered in November 2010 to stop the practice and issue refunds. Cash Store Financial appealed the decision, but Consumer Protection B.C. announced last week that much of the original compliance order has been upheld. The money-lending company continues to dispute the order.

Parents most common complaint is that their kids won’t listen. While the same frustration has been expressed for generations, there’s a program in Greater Victoria that just might help find a remedy. Since 2008, educators around southern Vancouver Island – within schools, community centres and public health units – have been trained on Triple P, or Positive Parenting Program, a system of parenting techniques based on behaviour monitoring and designed to reinforce positive actions and prevent the negative ones. Previous parenting systems haven’t been evidence-based and haven’t allowed parents to access the level of information they seek, said Cindy Knott, Vancouver Island Triple P co-ordinator. That level of information, Knott added, can range from one-time sessions and take-home materials to registration in

free parenting workshops and ongoing from Triple P programs is generally quite group support sessions. positive, even if some of what’s taught is “We’re not saying this is a program for more about reviewing what works than people who are having difficulty or (who learning new techniques. are) bad parents,” she said. “It’s for every“Parents typically feel like it’s really body.

Beach Clean Up

Residents Association AGM

Gyro Park receives funding boost

As the sun comes out, so do the beach-goers and Cadboro Bay is gearing up. Meet your neighbours in a community clean up of Cadboro Bay beach, hosted by the Royal Victoria Yacht Club, Cadboro Bay Residents Association, 12th Garry Oak Sea Scouts and the Cadboro Bay Sailing Association. The event runs Saturday, April 14, from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with the help of Saanich Parks, which will supply bags and discard debris.

Also on the agenda in Cadboro Bay is the upcoming annual general meeting of the Cadboro Bay Residents Association, which has several volunteer positions available on its board of directors. The meeting takes place in the evening on Monday, May 14, at Cadboro Bay United Church, 2625 Arbutus Rd. (The time has yet to be confirmed.) More details will be provided in the next CBRA newsletter, which will be distributed to all households in Cadboro Bay in late April.

Gyro Park will soon become more accessible to those with disabilities thanks to an infusion of cash from the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development. Saanich received a $337,500 grant toward the installation of a ramp from the promenade to the beach area, as well as a wheelchair accessible playground in the park. The grant, announced by Oak Bay-Gordon Head MLA Ida Chong, is part of a $30-million provincewide initiative to fund smaller-scale recreation infrastructure in communities outside the Lower Mainland. Eight of the 98 projects green lit (out of 219 applications), fall within the Capital Regional District and total $2.4 million. Esquimalt received $400,000 toward recreation centre upgrades and the City of Victoria is in line for $192,000 earmarked for outdoor fitness equipment pods. Recreation projects in Central Saanich, Highlands, Sooke and Langford were also approved. “It’s important that we have an understanding of what you’re doing in your communities, especially in today’s (economy) where we have a limited tax base. We have limited dollars,” Chong said. “The importance of funding recreational activities is still very important.”

Victoria family gets hearing into handling of son’s suicide told the outcomes of the investigations, but they were not satisfied with the results. “So now this is basically a search for the truth,� she said. In their complaint, the Fynes also say investigators failed to disclose that their son had left a suicide note, and withheld information from them. The couple are scheduled to testify as witnesses during the hearing, which is expected to take 10 to 12 weeks. In his announcement of the hearing schedule, complaints commission chair Glenn Stannard said the proceedings would be “complex, lengthy and demanding,� and would “involve voluminous evidence.� The commission’s job is to investigate complaints about military police conduct, and can make recommendations for changes to the military police and defence leaders. The hearing continues until April 26, then breaks before it resumes on May 7. emccracken@vicnews.com

A public-interest hearing began (March 27) in Ottawa to determine whether military police investigations following the suicide death of a Canadian solider were inadequate and biased. Sheila and Shaun Fynes of Victoria lodged an extensive complaint with the Military Police Complaints Commission on Jan. 18, 2011, against 13 investigators and officials within the Canadian Forces National Investigation Service, a branch of the military police. The parents of Cpl. Stuart Langridge, who took his own life on March 15, 2008 at CFB Edmonton

Cpl. Stuart Langridge and his mother Sheila Fynes pose for a photo pre-2008. after multiple suicide attempts, charge that the goal of the investigations into their son’s death was to clear military personnel of failing to prevent his death. Langridge, who served tours of duty in Bosnia and Afghanistan, had been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and depression. “We just felt the National Investigation Service was very protective of the uniform, of the military,� Sheila Fynes said before leaving to attend the hearing.

OUR VIEW

Why isn’t CRD collecting scraps? On first blush, this would seem to be another obvious example of the zaniness that comes with living in a Balkanized middle city. Saanich is the latest Greater Victoria municipality to have grown tired of waiting for the Capital Regional District to implement a regional kitchen scraps recycling program. Two neighbourhoods in Saanich -- both strategically located close to the municipal public works yard – will test the effectiveness of a plan to collect the scraps. The goal is to divert as much waste as possible from Hartland Landfill, thus allowing it to extend its lifespan before reaching capacity. Treated kitchen scraps are also reusable as a natural fertilizer, which is also an effective way to reduce our population’s impact on the environment. By going it alone, Saanich joins the City of Victoria (which starts its program next year) and the municipalities of Oak Bay and View Royal – all of which are diverting kitchen scraps outside of the auspices of the CRD. It’s worth noting that the View Royal and Oak Bay programs started as a single CRD pilot project before being taken over by their respective municipalities. With three independent kitchen scraps programs running within the core of Greater Victoria (plus one pilot program), why doesn’t the CRD – a political body tasked with representing the region – get with the program? (Pun intended.) It’s a fair question, but perhaps it’s also wise for the CRD to make the most of the current situation. Instead of trying to organize a one-sizefits-all solution for the diverse needs of its member municipalities, there is an opportunity to gather hard evidence for both the CRD board and the staffers who study such things. Unlike the Balkans, where a single state split into fractious factions, Greater Victoria has always been an assembly of independent areas with similar goals. Let’s see if Saanich’s program works better than what Victoria has planned, or if View Royal and Oak Bay have already figured out the best approach. There’s enough variation that common efficiencies and obstacles can be identified. Such information will be invaluable to an inevitable regional kitchen scraps recycling program. What do you think?

Of course van Dongen drove himself out of cabinet long before Clark returned. Chronic speeding by a public safety minister is a tough sell. I asked Cummins about the reluctance of key cabinet ministers Kevin Falcon and George Abbott to confirm they are running again. His aw-shucks friendly-grandpa modesty precludes speculation, but he did allow it’s “maybe a comment on the state of affairs in the Liberal caucus.” Reporters started surveying government MLAs after Falcon and Abbott kept their options open for 2013. For the record, ministers Terry Lake, Shirley Bond, Pat Bell, Mary Polak, Rich Coleman and Stephanie Cadieux all said they are firmly on Clark’s election team. Independentminded backbenchers Bill Bennett and Kevin Krueger also saluted the B.C. Liberal banner. Randy Hawes allowed that he’s 65, so if he leaves it will be for the golf course. As I was talking with Cummins, B.C. Conservative advisor Randy White was assuring the Abbotsford News that more defections are coming.

Sound advice for oil heating tank owners There have been problems recently with leaks from residential heating oil storage tanks in Saanich. Here is some information from the B.C. Ministry of Environment that may be useful. On properties under provincial jurisdiction, all underground storage tanks, and above ground tanks over 2,500 litres are regulated under the B.C. Fire Code ( BCFC ). A provision in the BCFC states that an owner is required to follow good engineering practices when removing, abandoning in place, or temporarily taking out of service a residential heating oil storage tank. To avoid potential liability, prospective home buyers may wish to:

• Have the property inspected for fill pipes, vent pipes, feed tubes, etc.; • Have purchasing offers subject to inspection by a building inspector and/ or underground storage tank locator; • Have an environmental consultant provide an estimate for removal, investigation and / or remediation and include this as a discount on the purchase price; • Include the tank removal and remediation as a condition of sale. Property owners may wish to: • Have their property inspected, in order to identify any oil tanks and to minimize the risk of leaks or spills; • Retain a qualified environmental professional to investigate their property during the removal of a heating oil

tank and have the professional prepare a report indicating that the property meets ministry standards via ministry endorsed methods. If your heating oil tank has leaked, you should take immediate action to stop the leak, and clean up the affected area. The BCFC requires a property owner to take all reasonable steps to recover escaped flammable or combustible liquids and to remove or treat contaminated soil located on the property. If the tank is unused or abandoned, any remaining heating oil should be removed by a qualified contractor and taken to an approved facility for disposal. Paul Gerrard Saanich councillor

Readers respond: elderly drivers, David Suzuki, job action Math shows senior drivers need watching There are 700,522 people over the age of 64 in British Columbia. One study determined that “...among elderly people living in the community, ... 15.8 per cent had cognitive impairment but no dementia, and 4.3 per cent had dementia.” A person with dementia should not drive; a person with cognitive impairment but no dementia should have an assessment of driving ability. Therefore, there are (700,522 x (0.158 + 0.043= 0.201)=) 140,805 people in B.C. who either should not drive or whose driving ability should be assessed. Another study found that, among people with dementia or cognitive impairment without dementia, at most 8% reported that they had dementia. Since 92 per cent of people with cognitive impairment do not report that they have cognitive impairment, there are (140,805 x 0.92 =) 129,540

people who may be driving with cognitive impairment, but do not report the impairment. The Office of the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles (OSMV) has the legal responsibility to assure that a person who has a driver’s licence can drive safely. It would be prudent for the OSMV to formally assess the driving ability of older drivers every few years. Robert Shepherd Saanich

Suzuki fails at tying science and religion Re: Religious right rejection of science (David Suzuki, March 30) David Suzuki manages to be wrong about just about everything these days. First of all, his comment is a thinly-veiled attack on religion. Suzuki claims that the victims of his bluster “put their misguided beliefs above rational thought.” Yet Mr. Suzuki has, time and time again, refused to debate his views, or the science,

and lambasts or attacks any evidence or opinions to the contrary. Sounds like he’s the one without rationale. He also complains that about the U.S. State of Tennessee allowing teachers to challenge existing theories on global warming. Yet this is exactly what science is about. Challenging existing theories. If Suzuki had been born centuries ago, would he have advocated the execution of Galileo? Suzuki has even gone so far as advocating the jailing of dissenting politicians. Does this sound like someone who knows his science, or someone who is just attempting to shout down all opposition as loud as he can? In the end, it’s Suzuki, and not the religious right, who is “anti-science.” James Felton Saanich

A simple solution to teachers’ issues I thought the teachers union was acting responsibly when they picketed

government offices. The government is actually their employer. I have a solution: China and the United States intend to make billions from refining Alberta bitumen. If the teachers took their union funds and pension investments and invested them into expanding the Chevron oil refinery in Burnaby, they could make the same billions. When they have enough to fund education they will no longer need the government to throttle their demands or a union to speak for them. They would be selfemployed. Elected officials are also self-employed; without accountability. If this scenario was acted upon it would have far reaching implications. There would be no environmentally destructive pipelines. No oil tankers on the B.C. coast and massive, long lasting, job creation. For every problem there is a solution. Kerry Steinemann Saanich

Enough rhetoric already, folks For the last several weeks we have been treated to radio and T.V. ads from the B.C. Government and the B.C. Teachers’ Federation, both extolling their own virtues. The government is telling us that they’re putting more money into the system than ever before because they care about the kids, and the union telling us that their working conditions are deplorable and that they’re doing it for the kids. Now this week I’m hearing ads from the B.C. Nurses Union and the rhetoric will be the same. The government will say it’s spending more money than ever because they care about the patients, and the nurses will say that their working conditions are deplorable and that they’re doing it for the patients. Why this war of words in the public domain? It’s the same every three to four years and I’m tired of it. Why can’t they sit down in a room and get the job done, come up with an agreement, and then let the voters decide if they like how the government is representing their needs and the union members can decide if they like the way that their leadership is representing them? The money and effort put into advertising and rhetoric would be much better spent elsewhere. Bob Broughton Victoria

Vision Matters Dr. Stephen Taylor

Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

Protect your eyes from UV radiation The sun supports all life on our planet; however, it’s life giving rays also pose dangers. The Principle danger is in the form of ultraviolet (UV) radiation. UVradiation is a component of solar energy, but it can also be given off by artificial sources like welding machines, tanning beds and lasers. UV radiation is divided into UV-A, UV-B and UV-C. UV-C is absorbed by the ozone layer and does not present any threat (man made sources of UV-C, like electric welding arcs, are very harmful to the eyes, if you do not use proper protection). That’s not true of UV-A and UV-B. Scientific evidence now shows that exposure to both UV-A and UV-B can have damaging long and short term effects on your eyes and vision. If you are exposed, unprotected, to excessive amounts of UV radiation over a short period of time, your are likely to experience a condition called photokeratitis. Like a “sunburn of the eye” it may be painful and you may have symptoms including red eyes, a foreign body sensation or gritty feeling in the eyes, extreme sensitivity to light and excessive tearing. Fortunately, this is usually temporary and rarely causes permanent damage to the eyes. Long term exposure to UV radiation can be more serious. Scientific research has shown that exposure to even small amounts of UV radiation over a period of many years may increase your chance of developing a clouding of the lens of the eye called a cataract and cause damage to the retina, the nerve-rich lining of your eye that is used for seeing. Damage to the lens or the retina is usually not reversible. The effects of UV radiation are cumulative. The longer your eyes are exposed to UV radiation, the greater the risk of developing conditions such as cataracts in later life. Therefore, you should wear quality sunglasses that offer good protection and a hat or cap with a wide brim whenever you are working outdoors, participating in outdoor sports, taking a walk, running errands or doing anything in the sun. To provide protection for your eyes, your sunglasses should: block out 99 to 100 per cent of both UV-A and UV-B radiation; screen out 75-90 per cent of visible light; be perfectly matched in color and free of distortion and imperfection; and have lenses that are gray, green or brown. If you spend a lot of time outdoors in bright sunlight, wrap around frames provide additional protection from harmful UV radiation. Be sure to see your Doctor of Optometry regularly for a thorough eye examination. It is a good way to monitor your eye health, maintain good vision and keep up to date with new advances in UVprotection.

SAANICH NEWS - Wednesday, April 4, 2012

Taking the blues out of commuting Business to offer direct bus service between Colwood and CFB Esquimalt Kyle Wells News staff

A Colwood entrepreneur is launching a private bus service to pick up where the cancellation of the military Blue Boat has left off. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blue Busâ&#x20AC;? shuttle service will transport people between the Colwood location of the Military Family Resource Centre on Rosebank Road, and the CFB Esquimalt front gates starting May 1. Buses are scheduled to leave near the military resource centre Monday to Friday at 6, 6:30 and 6:50 a.m. Return trips will leave from near CFB Esquimalt at 4:15 and 4:45 p.m.

Blue Bus developer Cynthia Cummings has a husband and son in the military who use the Blue Boat daily. With the upcoming cancellation of the service at the end of April, she said it only seemed logical that somebody provide an alternative. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing this because we are a military family,â&#x20AC;? said Cummings, who lives in Belmont Park. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing it for the military, just to ensure that our military community can continually, comfortably go to work.â&#x20AC;? Cummings said she thinks of herself as a logistical coordinator putting together a needed service. She isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expecting to make a profit, and will try to keep the cost as low as possible â&#x20AC;&#x201C; altering the level of service, with either more or less, depending on the demand. The Blue Bus service is selling itself as convenient, reliable and environmentally friendly, and specific

to the needs of military personnel and a solution to getting more cars off the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Colwood crawl.â&#x20AC;? The project has fallen together quickly for Cummings, who is working with Wilsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Transportation in Victoria to organize buses and drivers. She has already heard plenty of interest from military families and expects the service will be well used. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great idea, I do,â&#x20AC;? said Cummings husband, Warrant Officer Wayne Cummings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the military is very keen on something like this or anything, because they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a viable option, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a solution. This alleviates that issue.â&#x20AC;? Cummings said Blue Bus service â&#x20AC;&#x201D; unlike the outgoing Blue Boats, the buses will be

blue in name only â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will have the capacity to transport about 320 people in the morning. Between 300 and 500 people use the Blue Boat daily. With two buses per run, with three runs each weekday morning, and two back in the afternoon, Cummings said her company will be able to fill the gap. Parking for the service will be available for military personnel just inside the gates for the Department of National Defence property at the end of Rosebank Road. Alternative parking, for overflow or commuters

without military passes, will be available in the lower parking bowl of the West Shore Parks and Recreation property, near Bear Mountain Arena. The Blue Bus will swing up through the parking lot to pick up commuters. After that, the buses will go directly to CFB Esquimalt, with no other stops. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think word will travel very quickly, which is great. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we need,â&#x20AC;? said Cummings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it just gives you a good option.â&#x20AC;? A business licence from the City of Colwood is in the works and all transportation licensing comes through

Wilsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Transportation. The Department of National Defence is not involved with the service but has been contacted and is informed of the intent of the business. The service will be available to all military personnel, families, civilian workers or any members of the public who would like to take it. Riders will be able to purchase either a monthly pass at $60, a biweekly pass at $35 or a weekly pass at $20, plus HST. For more information visit www.bluebusshuttle.com. news@goldstreamgazette.com

The Story of

Easter Mark 15 & 16 New International Version (NIV)

Before Pilate – Very early in the morning, the J esus chief priests, with the elders, the teachers of the

law and the whole Sanhedrin, reached a decision. They bound Jesus, led him away and handed him over to Pilate. “Are you the king of the Jews?” asked Pilate. “Yes, it is as you say,” Jesus replied. The chief priests accused him of many things. So again Pilate asked him, “Aren’t you going to answer? See how many things they are accusing you of.” But Jesus still made no reply, and Pilate was amazed. Now it was the custom at the Feast to release a prisoner whom the people requested. A man called Barabbas was in prison with the insurrectionists who had committed murder in the uprising. The crowd came up and asked Pilate to do for them what he usually did. “Do you want me to release to you the king of the Jews?” asked Pilate, knowing it was out of envy that the chief priests had handed Jesus over to him. But the chief priests stirred up the crowd to have Pilate release Barabbas instead. “What shall I do, then, with the one you call the king of the Jews?” Pilate asked them. “Crucify him!” they shouted. “Why? What crime

has he committed?” asked Pilate. But they shouted all the louder, “Crucify him!” Wanting to satisfy the crowd, Pilate released Barabbas to them. He had Jesus flogged and handed him over to be crucified. The soldiers led Jesus away into the palace (that is, the Praetorium) and called together the whole company of soldiers. They put a purple robe on him, then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on him. And they began to call out to him, “Hail, king of the Jews!” Again and again they struck him on the head with a staff and spit on him. Falling on their knees, they paid homage to him. And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple robe and put his own clothes on him. Then they led him out to crucify him.

The Crucifixion A certain man from Cyrene, Simon, the father of Alexander and Rufus, was passing by on his way in from the country, and they forced him to carry the cross. They brought Jesus to the place called Golgotha (which means The Place of the Skull). Then they offered him wine mixed with myrrh, but he did not take Continued on pg. 16

it. And they crucified him. Dividing up his clothes, they cast lots to see what each would get. It was the third hour when they crucified him. The written notice of the charge against him read: THE KING OF THE JEWS. They crucified two robbers with him, one on his right and one on his left. Those who passed by hurled insults at him, shaking their heads and saying, “So! You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days, come down from the cross and save yourself!” In the same way the chief priests and the teachers of the law mocked him among themselves. “He saved others,” they said, “but he can’t save himself! Let this Christ, this King of Israel, come down now from the cross, that we may see and believe.” Those crucified with him also heaped insults on him.

At the sixth hour darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour. And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?”— which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” When some of those standing near heard this, they said, “Listen, he’s calling Elijah.” One man ran, filled a sponge with wine vinegar, put it on a stick, and offered it to Jesus to drink. “Now leave him alone. Let’s see if Elijah comes to take him down,” he said. With a loud cry, Jesus breathed his last. The curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. And when the centurion, who stood there in front of Jesus, heard his cry and saw how he died, he said, “Surely this man was the Son of God!” Some women were watching from a distance. Among them were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James the younger and of Joses, and Salome. In Galilee these women had followed him and cared for his needs. Many other women who had come up with him to Jerusalem were also there.

The Burial of Jesus It was Preparation Day (that is, the day before the Sabbath). So as evening approached, Joseph of Arimathea, a prominent member of the Council, who was himself waiting for the kingdom of God, went boldly to Pilate and asked for Jesus’ body. Pilate was surprised to hear that he was already dead. Summoning the centurion, he asked him if Jesus had already died. When he learned from the centurion that it was so, he gave the body to Joseph. So Joseph bought some linen cloth, took down the body, wrapped it in the linen, and placed it in a tomb cut out of rock. Then he rolled a stone against the entrance of the tomb. Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses saw where he was laid. Continued on pg. 17

The holy days of Easter About one-third of the planet, or roughly 2.1 billion people, are Christians. Each spring, this large population celebrates the religious miracle that is the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The Lenten season is one of the holiest times of year on the Christian calendar, beginning with Ash Wednesday and lasting through Easter Sunday. Many Christians celebrate Easter but may not know the significance or meaning behind certain days. Ash Wednesday – In the Roman Catholic Church, Ash Wednesday marks the first day of Lent, the season when one prepares for the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Ash Wednesday always falls 46 days before Easter and will vary according to the calendar. During the mass, celebrants receive ashes in the form of a cross on their foreheads made from burning the blessed palm fronds from last year’s Palm Sunday mass. Palm Sunday – Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week when Christians attend mass and receive fronds of blessed palms, commemorating the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem to celebrate the Passover. Holy Thursday – The Thursday preceding Easter Sunday marks Jesus Christ’s last supper with his disciples. His act of breaking bread and offering it as His “body” and sharing wine as His “blood” has become an integral part of the Christian mass, representing Christ giving His life in place of our sins. Good Friday – The day that Jesus had to march to his crucifixion site while carrying an extremely heavy wooden cross. Jesus was mocked, spit on, tortured, and forced to wear a crown of thorns during His journey after being arrested by Judas and then Continued on pg. 17

The Resurrection When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; body. Very early on the ďŹ rst day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb and they asked each other, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?â&#x20AC;? But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be alarmed,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was cruciďŹ ed. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Trembling and bewildered, the women went out and ďŹ&#x201A;ed from the tomb. They said nothing to anyone, because they were afraid. When Jesus rose early on the ďŹ rst day of the week, he appeared ďŹ rst to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had driven

seven demons. She went and told those who had been with him and who were mourning and weeping. When they heard that Jesus was alive and that she had seen him, they did not believe it. Afterward Jesus appeared in a different form to two of them while they were walking in the country. These returned and reported it to the rest; but they did not believe them either. Later Jesus appeared to the Eleven as they were eating; he rebuked them for their lack of faith and their stubborn refusal to believe those who had seen him after he had risen. He said to them, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.â&#x20AC;? After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God. Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and conďŹ rmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.

hannon Phillips’ living room looks like the inside of an Easter basket, complete with stuffed toys and chocolatey goodness. The Oak Bay resident has been collecting Easter goodies from within her community that will be distributed to children whose parents rely on the Mustard Seed Food Bank for help. Of the 300 goodie bags that Phillips is hoping to assemble, 190 are ready to go. Phillips is hopeful more people will come forward with chocolate donations so that more children will wake up to Easter treats on April 8. “My kids are five and seven and Easter is a huge, huge deal,” she said. “The Easter Bunny leaves eggs in the yard, and there’s always a toy.” When Phillips contacted the Mustard Seed in January with an offer of help, Fran Kitson told her the church’s Bunny Bags program needed support. Through that initiative, Easter supplies are collected and then distributed to families with children. “We’re not just a food bank,” said Kitson, Mustard Seed advocacy co-

ordinator. “We are a church that ministers to the whole person and we try and meet the need that they have for whatever reason they are coming.” More families are coming through their door for support, particularly the working poor. “They need more than food when they come for food,” Kitson said, adding clients may need everything from counselling to a birthday cake.” “We all need that little Easter egg, or we all need the birthday cake,” she said. “We all need that little extra.” When Phillips, through the Seed Ladies grassroots initiative she cofounded last year to support charities, asked the community for donations, the response was tremendous. Oak Bay dentist Dr. Cheryl Handley donated 300 toothbrushes, while Ross Bay and Emmanuel preschools helped spread the word about the project, and collected treats. Parents of Glenlyon Norfolk schoolchildren contributed 90 per cent of the goodies that have taken over Phillips’ living room. “People have been walking up to me and handing me bags of chocolate, bags of stuffies,” Phillips said. “It’s been incredible.” emccracken@vicnews.com

Support the one potato fund The Very Thought of You is available at Munro’s Books, Lyle’s Place, Larson Music and ianmcdougall.com or at the official CD launch tonight (April 4) from 7:30 p.m. at the University Club’s Fireside Lounge at UVic.

Jazz legend founds emergency fund for students Ian McDougall’s latest recording to benefit those in fine arts Natalie North News staff

Ian McDougall cranks the volume on his home stereo and lets a smile overwhelm him. His new recording of the Charlie Chaplin original, Smile, plays. “I like it loud,” says the 73-year-old jazz trombonist. Arms outstretched, McDougall pauses, then as if to point at the notes filling his living room, cries out in appreciation of Rick Wilkins’ arrangement on the track. “Listen to the strings,” McDougall says of the recording which happens to be much slower – and more emotional – than most expect from the ballad. The way Chaplin intended, he says. But the iconic jazz musician, Juno Award winner, University of Victoria professor emeritus and Order of Canada recipient stops himself short of embarking on a conversation about sentiment. The story behind his latest disc, The Very Thought of You, featuring Smile and 13 other classic ballads performed by an all-star ensem-

wife Barb, a four-piece rhythm section, 20 strings and an oboe. Barb, a violinist, produced and mixed the recording. The oldest of the ballads – which McDougall insists aren’t jazz – is a 1926 George Gershwin tune. The newest: Henry Mancini’s Moon River from ’61. McDougall’s epic career began in late night downtown Victoria, where he “learned on the job,” he says, as young as 12 years old. “Instead of playing in the school band, I was playing in the clubs with a bunch of boozers,” he adds. He went on to play on somewhere in the neighbourhood of 40 LPs and CDs over his 63-year-career and accompany the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Tony Bennett and Gladys Knight. McDougall continues to perform with his band, the Ian McDougall 12tet. “Musicians never stop working if they care about music,” McDougall says, adding that continuing to play is also an excuse not to drink cheap wine. Should CD sales take off, Ten Mile has plans to extend the fund to fine arts students across the country. “I’m very happy to the supporters and that they’re happy giving to this fund. What more can you ask for?” nnorth@saanichnews.com

Chantal Kreviazuk and James Ehnes headline Victoria symphony season A blockbuster line-up is ahead for the Victoria Symphony. Beginning her tenth season as Music Director of the Victoria Symphony Maestra Tania Miller unveiled the schedule for the symphony’s 72nd season which includes singer songwriter Chantal Kreviazuk and Grammy Award winning violinist James Ehnes. For the first time in its history the Victoria Symphony will perform Bartok’s Miraculous Mandarin and Nielsen’s Symphony No. 5. The VS Pops Series will feature Cirque de la Symphonie, The Beatles: Sergeant Pepper, and in tribute to the retirement of Principal Pops Conductor Brian Jackson, The Best of Brian Jackson. Leading off the announcements, Miller said it was hard to believe the new season would be her 10th as music director. When she joined the symphony in 2003, she was not only the youngest music director of a major orchestra in Canada at age 33, but she was also the only female music director. Her contributions to the Victoria Symphony have included innovative programming, significant orchestra changes and increased music education programs. The Concert for Kids Series will begin with The Snowman on Nov. 18. The film version of the story will be shown with live musical accompaniment by the orchestra. The New Music Festival in November will celebrate 100 years of one of the most iconic and revolutionary figures in musical history – John Cage. Subscription packages and season brochures are available through the Victoria Symphony box office at 250-385-6515. llavin@vicnews.com

Biking is back World-class cyclists on hand to mentor students Travis Paterson News staff

Six months pregnant, Erinne Willock has put the racing bike away in favour of cruising the Galloping Goose. Granted, the pro-cyclist and 2008 Olympian still knows a thing or two about her sport and she’s eager to share. This Friday (April 6) Willock will join several world-class cyclists lending their knowledge at the School Bike League’s inaugural Bike Jam. “The school bike league is what got me on my bike and started my career,” Willock said. The Stelly’s grad remembers going to school races in the 1990s with 300 or 400

Edward Hill/News staff

Olympian road cyclist Erinne Willock and mountain bike national team coach Geoff Pendrel will be coaching kids at Bike Jam on Friday (April 6). kids competing. When she found herself with time to spare this winter, she offered to help out with the bike league. The day-long festival is a free event for middle and high school students in Greater Victoria. It also serves as the spring season

kickoff for the newly rebranded School Bike League. The Bike Jam runs 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the lower park of Juan de Fuca Recreation Centre, using the Velodrome and BMX track, among the other natural features available. “It’s the best place we could imagine,”

said School Bike League co-organizer Lara McCulloch. “We’re running dual slalom tracks down the slope, and we’ll have access to track bikes on the Velodrome and BMX bikes on the BMX track.” Willock’s road racing clinic is one of seven half-hour stations that kids will move through at Bike Jam. “We’ll do drills and skills, maybe a few little relay races,” Willock said. “It’s informative and also fun, and good for all skill levels.” Each station will be led by experts: the Victoria BMX Association, the Greater Victoria Velodrome Association, single-speed cyclocross world champion Drew McKenzie, national mountain-biking coach Geoff Pendrel and elite downhill mountain biker Scott Mitchell. Perhaps the most fun element is the Camp of Champions Air Bag. Kids can jump their bike in the air and land on the bag. At 3:30 p.m., pro dirt jumpers Jarrett Moore (Oak Bay) and Sam Dueck (Vancouver) will put on an exhibition using the bag. “In the 1990s, there was 400 kids in the bike league but, last year, there was maybe 40 kids,” said McCulloch, who’s on the organizing team with Kate Beardmore, Lister Farrar, Eric Simonson, Bruce Tonkin and Tony Wakelin. “We’re doing this huge promotion because the word wasn’t getting out. We saw that the bike league needed exposure.” Registration is free at schoolbikeleague. ca or prior to the event’s 10 a.m. start. sports@vicnews.com

Bays drop Jackson as brothers up rivalry Tyler Hughes wins battle of the brothers over Jordie in VISL cup final Travis Paterson News staff

A late surge by Cowichan FC dusted the hopes of Victoria’s Bays United in the 2012 Jackson Cup at Royal Athletic Park on Sunday afternoon. The Bays took an early 1-0 lead on a goal by Dan Cumming (7th minute) and held it until brothers Chris and Matt Arnett scored in the 65th and 72nd minute, respectively, to win it 2-1 for Cowichan. It’s the second straight year Cowichan won the historic Jackson Cup trophy as Vancouver Island Soccer League champions, beating upstart Juan de Fuca last year. Sunday was especially bitter for Bays midfielder Jordie Hughes, whose brother Tyler is the anchor on Cowichan’s back line. “We talked about it going into this game – that one of us was going to have one more (Jackson Cup) than the other,” Jordie said. “It’s always been competitive, going back to when we were kids.” Big brother Tyler, 31, now has two

Jackson titles, while Jordie, 27, is stuck at one, which he won with Gorge FC over Cowichan in 2010. The two Spectrum community school grads are best known for playing together on the Victoria Highlanders, but on Sunday they were pitted against each other. With less than three minutes to go in regulation, the Bays were one step short of hitting the desperate button when Jordie challenged Tyler in a one-on-one. Jordie beat Tyler to the outside and would’ve had an opportunity to make a dangerous crossing pass until Tyler tripped him. By doing so, Tyler surrendered a free kick just outside the 18 yard box along the goal line. It was the second time Tyler had fouled Jordie in a game this season. “(Tyler) got a yellow card earlier this season for pushing me,” Jordie said. “He said he would have pushed me harder if he knew he was going to get carded.” This foul, however, could have become a legendary highlight in the Hughes’ soccer history. Luckily for Tyler, it didn’t. On the ensuing free kick Jordie chipped a lobbing cross into the six yard box, where all 11 Bays were pressing for the tying goal. Cowichan cleared it, then survived a header from Jordie that just missed, and a volley by Peter

Bays United’s Cody Fitzsimmons slide checks Cowichan FC’s Matt Arnett during Jackson Cup play at Royal Athletic Park on April 1. Richmond that cleared the crossbar by three feet, all in the waning moments. Matt Arnett was named MVP of the game. “(Cowichan) played well,” Jordie said. “The field wasn’t the greatest, it was sticky (and wet). Both teams had chances and we were unlucky.” The Bays and Cowichan will continue on in the provincial cup.

SAANICH NEWS - Wednesday, April 4, 2012

Housing built for renters rare in Greater Victoria Roszan Holmen On March 1, with no media fanfare, a new below-market apartment building quietly started accepting tenants. The 52-unit building at 21 Gorge Rd. E. marks a new beginning for the site, which housed the notorious Capri Motel until its demolition in 2009. For developer Alanna Holroyd, its successful completion proves rental housing can be achieved with only modest capital grants and no ongoing rental subsidies. She named the building Loreen Place after her mother, Loreen Vandekerkhove. “She was raised poor and she remembers it quite well,” says Holroyd, who created the non-profit Greater Victoria Rental Development Society in 2009. She secured a $9.8-million loan to construct the building with only $740,000 in grants up front. “In the business world, that is unheard of,” she says. Traditionally, developers have needed to raise 50 per cent of the cost to get a loan. Touring through one of the unrented units, Holroyd proudly points to the wide, white baseboards. “We really put thought into if we’d want to live here.” Her desire for a beyond-thebasics facility has fuelled a good-

Loreen Place offers below-market prices to renters with a household income of less than $65,000. humoured tug-of-war between Holroyd, the idealist, and her business partner, Kaye Melliship, the pragmatist. “We’re going to reduce some of the extras in our next building,” says Melliship, executive director of the Greater Victoria Housing Society, which manages and coowns Loreen Place. “You have to be very realistic about the cost of maintaining the building.”

Give them power. Give them confidence Give them control.

“But then it wouldn’t be so nice!” argues Holroyd. With a grin she adds: “See how we work well together?” Holroyd won the argument when it came to including features such as a light above the tub (good for shaving, she says) and large garden beds in the interior courtyards. “She even petitioned for in-suite washers and dryers,” Melliship says with an exasperated smile.

Police bust possible meth lab

Wednesday, April 4, 2012 - SAANICH

Members of the RCMP’s clandestine lab team spent last Thursday in Saanich, cleaning out the back of a rented SUV containing what is believed to be a mobile meth lab. Saanich police seized the Nissan Rogue March 28 after “a bunch of strange chemicals” were found in the trunk while an officer was arresting the driver, according to Saanich police Sgt. Dean Jantzen.

The vehicle was parked at Shelbourne Village Square, on Cedar Hill X Road, when the officer spotted the man, barefoot, with his feet hanging out the driver’s-side window. He went to check on the driver, who needed to be woken up and appeared to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol. When the officer identified the driver, it turned

out he was in breach of probation. A search of the car uncovered the chemicals, along with drug paraphernalia, including bags and scales, Jantzen said. The man was arrested and the SUV, which was rented in Vancouver, was seized. The Vancouver-based RCMP unit arrived Thursday, to remove the chemicals from the truck and to help identify what they are.

Jantzen says it could be months before the RCMP determines what the ingredients were. There were multiple containers of these materials, some about the size of a large jerry can. “The investigative theory is these are precursor chemicals in relation to the production of chemical drugs like methamphetamine and GHB,” Jantzen said. A 31-year-old Saanich TELUS AUTHORIZED man was arrested. He DEALERS currently faces charges of breach of probation. kslavin@saanichnews.com VANCOUVER ISLAND

Impaired man spits in face of Saanich cop A highly intoxicated and combative man was pepper sprayed after allegedly spitting in the face of a Saanich police officer last week. Police were called to Gorge Park, at Tillicum and Gorge roads, around 5:25 p.m. on March 27, after receiving reports of a man who appeared to be in distress. When officers arrived, they found the man to be drunk. He was spitting and yelling obscenities, said Staff Sgt. Mike Barkley. “In the attempt to arrest him, in a state of intoxication (the man) attempted to kick the officers and spat into the face of one of the officers,” Barkley said. The officer deployed his pepper spray. With the help of three other officers, police were able arrest the man. “He was combative throughout the whole process, until he sobered up (Wednesday) morning,” Barkley said. The 31-year-old apparently didn’t remember the incident when questioned the next day. He was expected to appear in court April 4 for charges of assaulting a police officers. kslavin@saanichnews.com
